Brand Name: Models Own Hyper Matte Brite Lipstick

Colour: Annalise’s Pink

Price: £6

Lipcote Rating: 4.2 / 5

Models Own has been around for a while, and we know them best for their great selection of nail polish shades. They’ve recently grown in popularity, and produce trend-led cosmetics with great pigmentation at ultra-affordable prices, and where there’s a matte lippie, there’s a Lipcote lady ready to test it, all in the name of research…

We chose the shade Annalise’s Pink in their formula Hyper Matte Brite Lipstick, and boy is it bright! The whole range is pretty neon, but we’d say this pink is the brightest of the bunch. It has cool blue undertones, and it leans quite purple, which gives the fluorescent effect. It could be a little bit Barbie-ish, but we think it’s just how you wear it; with a slick of mascara and dewy skin to keep the overall look toned-down is our preference. Although the range is called Hyper Matte the formula does actually have quite a sheen to it, but blotting to give it a really velvet matte finish makes it look much more modern, fresh, and less Barbie! Of course a slick of Lipcote over the top helps with this too, to seal the matte finish in place. The fragrance is actually one of our faves, and with hints of vanilla and berries it’s quite similar to MAC. And the packaging, although pretty budget, is cool, with a clear tube through which you can see the whole lipstick bullet. It also makes finding it in your makeup bag a doddle!

We’re impressed with the great pigmentation and catwalk-worthy shade of this lippie, at a high-street price! And as usual, look out for our lipstick giveaway over on our Facebook page to see how you can win it and a bottle of Lipcote.

Good luck!

Love, Lipcote x
